Rendering is Like Photography: The Camera and Lenses (Part 2)

In this 4-part webinar series, architect and photographer Aryan Mirfendereski will share aspects of photography that you can use to enhance the quality of your architectural visualizations.

Part 2: The Photographer's Camera and Lenses: Technically-Created Stylistic Elements

This session will include examples from photography and visualization and cover the following aspects:

  • The focal length. Shorten, lengthen, compress, distort.
  • The aperture. Depth of field.
  • The shutter speed. Define light, imply movement.
  • ISO. The light sensitivity of my film / sensor.
  • The dependence of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO

About the webinar series

To be able to convey the complexity of thoughts when designing and of perceptions when photographing, it takes more than pure technology. In this webinar series, we will talk about the power of the thoughts that you put into a project and the means you have at your disposal to communicate those thoughts.

We’ll talk about the visual language, the readability of a picture, and the aesthetic effect and its laws. We’ll discuss what stylistic means, which you, in turn, can use with the help of your technology to let the viewers of your work actually see what you want them to see.
